Somtimes Inspiration can come from Odd Places

Meet Blake Comeau. He’s now playing right wing for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, a AAA hockey team, but he recently played with the New York Islanders of the NHL. As those of you who know me well are aware, I do have some post-college-graduation hockey experience. But it’s nothing like these guys.

I’m a Sound Tigers season ticket holder, mainly for the enjoyment of my kids. At the team’s season ticket holder welcome party, I had a chance to chat with Blake for a few minutes. My question: So how different was it playing for the NY Islanders than the Bridgeport Sound Tigers?

His answer wasn’t surprising to me. He said: “Everyone on the Islanders plays his role to perfection. They know what to do and where to go when someone gets the puck. It’s all very well coordinated, so naturally the game is much faster.”

That may sound like the big DUH! But I found myself thinking about the teams I work with and how, when you have rock star athletes (or marketers) on your team, you get more done, faster and with less effort.

So I want to give kudos to all of the members of my team and my peers, who enable us all to play faster and get more done with less effort!
